Oddly enough, today's post was inspired by Fringe, that new J.J. Abrams show on Fox where special agents investigate a mysterious sequence of unexplained phenomena (aka really weird sh*t). It's not as jaw-dropping as, say, Lost, but it's definitely entertaining. And anytime there's a badass female lead, I take notice. (Plus Joshua Jackson's in it, how can you not love that?) Anna Torv, who plays FBI Agent Olivia Dunham is, of course, as good-looking as she is talented. She's smart, fearless and determined, and has a clean, classic style to match. In the last episode, the clever folks in wardrobe styled her in a crisp white button-down shirt, black pants, black boots and a lightweight black trench. It's a look that's sophisticated, polished, professional and chic...for crime-fighting FBI agents and everyday budget babes alike.
Here are a few reasonably priced options, but I'd recommend buying the best quality trench you can afford because it will be a beloved wardrobe staple for years to come. Nothing "fringe" about this fashion!
